I so agree with your sentiments. How could the Israel government not learn and figure out that it will now be blamed for the proping up of the Egyptian Mubarak regime. It must distance itself with clear concise phrases like Democracy for the Egyptian people, free and fair elections, human rights, allowance for political dissents. Mubarak-let your people go!. To be on Mubarak's side is both morally wrong and politically wrong and stratigically, and has been so for a whole lot of years. Some thick skinned israeli military/political analysts should be re-calibrated- The same applies to Jordan, Syria, Iran and every other autocratic dictatorship that Israel find's comfort in supporting. Democracies do not start wars-dictatorships do.
